I got some yummy info on the upcoming new model for the PlayStation Portable, which will be released this fall. here’s the additional info about PSP Go! (info from pspiso.com)
– 43 percent lighter than the PSP-3000
– 16GB of Flash storage
– Bluetooth built-in; supports handset tethering and BT headsets
– No UMD drive
– Memory Stick Micro slot
– Full PlayStation Network Support (movie and TV rentals / purchases)
– Integration with PlayStation 3
The PSP Go has a 3.8-inch wide screen (versus 4.3-inch on all previous PSP models). It’s said to be 43 percent lighter than the PSP 3000, which means it would tip the scales at about 3.8 ounces. The PSP Go design is very reminiscent of the Sony Mylo
The Go will offer 16GB of built-in flash memory, and it’s expandable via a Memory Stick Mirco slot. There is no UMD (Universal Media Disc) drive on the PSP Go.
While the layout may be different, the control scheme on the PSP Go looks to be little changed from earlier PSP models: a 4-way d-pad on the left, the standard quartet of geometrically coded Sony controls (circle, square, cross, triangle) on the right, select/start buttons in the center, and the PlayStation “home” button to the left of the screen.
In addition to certain Wi-Fi support, the PSP Go adds Bluetooth capability to the Sony handheld platform. In addition to support for standard Bluetooth headsets, it also has the ability to tether the PSP Go to a Bluetooth-enabled cellphone.
For games, PSP versions of Little Big Planet, Jak and Daxter, Gran Turismo, and “a new Metal Gear Solid was mentioned to be release alongside or after the release of PSP Go.
As for the downloadable titles: a wide selection already exists on the PlayStation Store for existing PSP owners.
the Go will have at least the same baseline media features as the existing PSP models, which includes ample support for music, video, and photo files. Koller also mentions downloadable movies and TV shows (which can be purchased in the PlayStation Network)
